Investing in families living in poverty in Rwanda


Through November 30th, shop our Cause Team store and we will recieve 40% of your purchase. Or you can make a one-time or recurring donation under our "donate" page. Funds from this will go towards finishing the building of our new classrooms.


To help us cover the costs of our vocational training school we are looking for advocates for our sewing students. By making a $80 a month donation you can partner with us in empowering adults through skills training. Our dream is to see each student developing their own business at the end of the school year. 

Focus Areas

Child Advocacy

The entire well-being of the child is key to us. We invest in their mental, emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual health.

Vocational Training

Many adults within our community were never given the opportunity to attend school as a child. We offer them literacy classes to learn those basic skills. We have also begun job training in the area of sewing skills with the intent of expanding that to welding, hairdressing, and driving in the future.

Family Investment

The health of the entire family is of key importance. Each member's health is impacted by the others in the household. For this reason we want to empower the entire family unit.

School Development

Quality education is a high priority for us. We desire to provide the children in our community with a safe, loving environment as they learn.

"This is an amazing and lovely opportunity that we have been given. I did not get this when I was young. I believe that this will help us in the future and we will no longer be ashamed because of our illiteracy."

A Rwandan pastor and an American looking for her purpose in the world meet...

Rooted Oaks International began, in 2016, when God brought together Antoine, from Rwanda, and Anna, from the United States. They shared a passion for seeing all children given the love, support, and education they deserve. This passion quickly led to today’s ministry.
